Quinoa Quiche

I love quiche. I love how easy it is to prepare, I love how light it is, I love how much you can do with the filling. Eventually though, the old puff pastry base becomes a bit boring. That’s when I stumbled across a recipe for a quinoa crust. Translating from cups of cooked quinoa…

Special Birthday Apple Pie

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for a very special occasion: my mums birthday is tomorrow! My mum is an amazing lady. She raised three kids all on her own, while first going to school and then running her own business. She was always there when we needed her. She would make all kinds of…

Aubergine Pizza Bites

After the craze of the cauliflower pizza base, I started thinking about other vegetables that could serve as pizza bases. Let’s say the brilliance of the cauliflower is a hard one to surpass. I will post my rendition of this base very soon as well (it has avocado and it’s amazing). My next step was…

About Chocolate Popsicles

I feel like I should explain something. I’ve never liked chocolate ice cream. I thought this was just because of the effect that the lactose had on me and that I would like it if it didn’t hurt me so much. I believed that in my whole popsicle journey I should at least have one…

Corn Cakes

These went through quite a few renditions, not least because I used cornstarch instead of cornmeal the first time … Not one of my proudest moments. The first try of these was very dry, but I could see there was potential there. The second try I added the corn to the blender as well. This…

Mango Coco Popsicles

These are loosely based on the Pina Colada popsicles I did two weeks ago. I was looking for something that was as tasty, but a little less stuffed with coconut. I decided to omit the shredded coconut in favour of just coconut milk. I decided on mango because it’s naturally sweeter than pineapple, and blends…

Banana Pancakes

These are my absolute favourite weekend breakfast. I love pancakes, but traditional pancakes are just so full of all kinds of milk (even if it’s dairy free milk) and fats and carbs that I’m not necessarily waiting for, even if it’s weekend. Along came these fluffy clouds of dreamy pancakes. Covered in honey or maple…

Raspberry Banana Popsicles

Sometimes, things just work out. These popsicles were exactly that. I came up with them, made them and was happy. That doesn’t happen very often. In the end, all popsicles are frozen smoothies on a stick. I decided to freeze my favourite smoothie. Banana strawberry. I couldn’t find strawberries anymore, only raspberries, but they make me…

Roasted Potato Salad

This is another one of my efforts to not eat hot food when it’s hot outside. I’ve always liked potato salad, but all the mayonnaise often makes me wonder how long it will still be until I die of a heart attack and mayonnaise based on yogurt is not really an option. I set out…
